Gabriela Cavallin, the accuser of Manchester United’s Antony, speaks out as the Brazilian winger returns to training.
Gabriela Cavallin, the ex-girlfriend of Manchester United star Antony, has spoken out for the first time since the Brazilian winger’s return to training at Old Trafford. Antony recently returned to Manchester after being in Brazil since early September, when he joined the national team. However, he was subsequently withdrawn from the squad due to allegations by Cavallin and two other women.
The Premier League club had granted Antony a leave of absence earlier to address the allegations. As he resumes training, Cavallin has broken her silence through a press release from her attorneys. The statement indicates that the alleged crimes committed by Antony are still under investigation by both Manchester Police and Brazilian Police. It suggests that the Manchester United man may soon face a trial.
The press release also alludes to the belief that there may be ulterior motives behind Antony’s return to training, insinuating that the allegations against him are being manipulated to serve other interests.
Antony had previously given an emotional television interview in Brazil, vehemently denying the allegations. He stated, “I know the truth, and it will come out. I’m 100 percent sure I never touched a woman, and I’ll come up with the evidence. I’m sure I’ve never committed physical violence.”
